HOW TO: Chic Glossy Red Lipstick | Bronte Jones x The Makeup Loft | Maybelline New York

Jones with her Vivid Hot Lacquer lip.

First stop – the eyes. Finding the right makeup to complement red lips can be difficult, but luckily the Total Temptation palette works a treat in this department. Red lipstick goes great with smokey eyes as long as they are done right… and not overdone. Bronte starts with a neutral warm brown transition shade, working it into her crease. She follows this up with a lighter peach tone, and then brushes the gold highlighter from her inner corners onto her eyelids.

Next, she uses cult favourite Master Precise Liner to draw a sharp cat eye. Using the tried and tested triangle method, she works her way across the eyelid, creating a precise edge and filling it in from there. Finally, she smokes out her lash line with Lasting Drama 24H Gel Pencil and a black shimmer eyeshadow shade for an extra pop.

Bronte highlighters her brow bones with the Total Temptation Palette for the perfect sunkissed look, and dresses up her lashes with the luxe, coconut oil infused Total Temptation Mascara.

To keep all eyes on her statement lip, Bronte goes low-key with the blush and sticks to Fit Me Blush in a rosey tone.

Finally, she preps her lips with ColorBlur Cream Matte Pencil and goes in with Vivid Hot Lacquer in shade 70 ‘so hot’.

Come through, bombshell beauty!
